Safety on Walks - Risk Assessments Safety on Walks - Risk Assessments

From May 15th 2024, written risk assessments for every walk are no longer required.
We do still need to risk assess our walks - details below ...

New Guidance for Walk Leaders

Please continue to use the old risk-assessment system until you've had time to get up to speed with the new training materials and guidance documents. It's not too difficult but you might need some help if your computer is ancient or you struggle with IT. The training takes about 90 minutes and can be split into multiple short sessions.

Resources for walk leaders


Download the Risk Assessment Document

This applies to all walks and does not need to be edited. Pages 4, 5 and 6 apply to us.


Ramblers recommends you keep a diary.

Download this diary to Record your Assessments.

Record the main risks for each walk. If you print the this document, use the last page to record your diary. You only need to record the walk date, name and very brief risk details like bad weather, busy road crossings, difficult terrain etc.
